For decades, Meijer has worked to build better and more efficient stores and facilities. Through years of focused improvements on our lighting, heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration systems, we’ve made a big impact.
Since 2005 we’ve reduced our energy use per store by nearly 30 percent.
That number continues to improve. For example, in 2021, we will completely transition all our in-store lighting to energy-efficient LEDs.
We continue to look for new opportunities to make our operations more efficient every day.
In 1974, the first edition of the Meijer company newsletter, the Cracker Barrel, was dedicated to the energy crisis.
